arhmatic: Love Rishi. Fist time hearing him speak, very articulate and informative.

He definately lacks the aptitude but I can understand the geopolocal reason behind his choice. Amazon needs the needs to penetrate Indian market.

In reply to:

TheClueless: Either the photographer sucks or the system as it stands is quite underwhelming. Comparing a few of those images, I get *way* better shots in similar situations on the D850. I'm giving Nikon the benefit of the doubt in this case though.

Personally, when evaluating kit I try to aim for shots which contain consistent content (I'll even carry targets with me at times), or if it's unavailable, try to frame certain targets in a similar way to past shots. Even for stuff I buy, and even though I've now moved out of town, I shlep back in to the same places to take test shots. Once I'm done doing that, I can go into photographer mode in the knowledge that I know exactly what it can do, and whether I made the best relative decision.

If you as a photographer-reviewer don't have the talent to bring genuine art into your shots, you can at least try to bring reproducible objectivity to them. Just a thought

There is no way Nikon mirrorless can bring significant advantage over their DSLR counterpart...The IQ in this case is far inferior to D850

jazja: Hint ;)
When taking pictures of people do not always absolutely open the aperture.

Many pro wanna be think that's how to pros use their FF mega buck cameras.

TheDarmok74: So only pre-production units available but they will sell the camera by the end of september?
I am very curious to see that happening.

@Barney Briton: Are you part of Nikon marketing machine? You are visibly oozing hyperbolic promises from Nikon. This kind of gear enthusiasm is rarely seen outside Nikon fan base. Well done..

makofoto: Where are the AF stress test photos? Wide open fast action ...

That will kill the hype...bad practice. Dpreview is here to give fanboys hope.

Auricom 007: Those shots are the bleeding edge of technological prowess only Nikon can provide. I love you Nikon!

only if we can get Leica glass on it though ;)

Nothing to write home about....Thanks to Sony anyhow.

Highly overpriced for what it offers....My expectations were too high. I am left deeply disturbed. Too much hype I am afraid.

@Southdownwolf: There is nothibg better ghan native lens. F mojnt lens will look ugly mounted with adaptor and optically do not meet the IQ offered by mirrorless competition..even Nikon themselves admitted that apart from few many of there F month lens are outresolved by modern sensors.

Fuji had 12 lens within one year of launch ... tell me if you can do better than that.

In reply to:

Battersea: The title should announce the awards themselves and not hype one brand. I doubt many people on here care much about these kind of industry participation awards but at least have a fair title.

I agree, it's almost like the staff here are on Sony's payroll...

dual12: I'm guessing few of those Sony buyers have ever used a real camera before...hahahaha.

That's very juvenile of you...you see a camera only in Nikon brand? How cheap!

stevo23: Standard chest beating prior to a conflict.

And Canon lies in wait, quietly plotting.

It will take a lot of plotting to climb the mountain load of Sony superiority. Nikon is in much worse shape though.
